Islam respects the Woman
"I do not think that a man gets better in faith without loving women better."
A man once sought the Imam Al-Sadiq's (a.s.) advice concerning women, saying that as his wife, who was agreeable to him, had died, he wanted to marry again. The Imam told him, "See where you put yourself, whom you take as a partner in your life, and to whom you disclose your religion and secrets. So, if you have to, then marry a virgin known to be righteous and of good behavior".
A man came to the Prophet (s.a.w.) and asked him, "O Messenger of Allah! Whom should I be more dutiful to?"
The Prophet (s.a.w.) replied, "To your mother." He asked, "Then to whom?" He replied, "To your mother." The man again asked, "Then to whom?" The prophet said, "To your father." It is narrated that a foster-sister of the Prophet (s.a.w.) visited him one day.
He was very pleased with her, spread out his cloak for her to sit on, and conversed with her merrily. After she went away, her brother arrived, but the Prophet did not receive him as warmly as he had received his sister, Later on when some one asked him the reason for receiving the sister more courteously than her brother, although a man, the Prophet replied, "Because she was more dutiful to her parents than he."
Abu Khadijah quotes the Imam Al- Sadiq (a.s.) as follows: "A man came to the Prophet and told him," "A girl was born to me. I brought her up till she reached puberty, I then dressed her, adorned her, brought her to a well and pushed her into it. The last thing I heard was her pitiful cry: `O father!' So, what atonement may I offer?"
The Prophet asked him, "Is your mother alive?" He replied, "No." He asked, "Do you have an aunt? He said, "Yes," The Prophet instructed him, "Then be dutiful to her, as she is like a mother, this will be your atonement for what you have done."
Abu Khadijah asked the Imam; "When the incident took place?" He replied, "During the period of Ignorance. As they used to kill the girls for fear that they would be taken captive and give birth to their children among other people".
The Imam Al-Sadiq (a.s.) is also quoted to have said: "Whoever provides sustenance for three girls or three sisters, Paradise will surely be his." He was asked. "What if two? He said," Even if two. "He was also asked." What if one? "He said, `Even if one.'
The Imam Abu Al-Hasan Al-Rida (a.s.) is quoted to have said:
